Fostering in Bearwood

The Poole Adoption & Fostering Team is pleased there are some committed foster carers in Bearwood. Local Poole children have already benefitted from living with them. We would like to recruit more foster carers and would be very pleased to hear from people who would like to find out more about fostering in Poole.

Foster carers can be married, with a partner or single, and may or may not have children already living with them. Some Foster carers decide to foster children under 5, and others decide to foster teenagers or over 5’s. Some foster carers look after children for a few months, others decide they want to look after children on a long term basis. All foster carers are reliable people who can work as part of a team, and help children through a difficult period in their life, giving them an opportunity to have a better future.

Poole Children & Families unit provide training, financial back-up and 24 hour support.

Children need fostering for many reasons. If you would like to find out more about helping local children in your community, we can arrange for you to talk to other foster carers. WE NEED YOU NOW. Please give us a call on 01202 261501.
